Travel & Participation Stipend

To broaden participation in the TACCSTER 2024 symposium from around the State of Texas, we are supporting up to six Travel and Participation Awards for up to $1,500 each. The awards are intended to cover registration, travel, and accommodation expenses incurred for attending TACCSTER 2024 in Austin. Award recipients will be expected to give a 15-20 minute talk on their TACC-related work in a dedicated session at the symposium.

The Travel & Participation Awards are available to Undergraduate and Graduate Students who will be enrolled in institutions of higher education in the State of Texas at the time of the symposium. Priority will be given to those who would not otherwise be able to attend without receiving the Travel & Participation Award.

Additional details including instructions on how to apply will be posted soon.

Poster Presentations & Lightning Talks

TACCSTER is accepting abstracts to be considered for a poster presentation at the symposium. Abstracts should highlight original research or related activities performed on TACC systems (any field of study).

Abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be assessed on their overall content, impact, and relevance to TACC. Limited exceptional submissions will be invited to give a lightning talk in addition to a poster. Poster presenters will be evaluated by a panel of judges on their overall content, impact, relevance to TACC, and the effectiveness of their communication. Select presentations will be highlighted on the TACC website following the symposium.

Additional details including instructions on how to apply will be posted soon.
